I met Jasmine and Lauren before sunset to document their love story on the day of their styled Huntington Beach elopement wedding hosted by The Golden Creative.
Their cake was set up near the sandy cliff formations where we started their romantic photos. Jasmine hugged Lauren in close as they stole kisses from each other.
For a more intimate setting, we decided to make our way to the top of this cliff. During our walk the two were silly with one another as Jasmine helped Lauren hold her dress (and Lauren sneaked in a butt squeeze). At the top of this cliff we were met with a view of the entire beach, Catalina Island, and a breeze creating the dramatic movement we love to see. This is the Huntington Beach elopement view we were dreaming of. The two exchanged their vows in private as I documented the emotions pouring out. Jasmine then tossed Lauren back for the world’s #1 most passionate kiss! The sun was beginning to lower so we headed back to the beach for a walk in the sand. The sunset was overcome by gorgeous, creamy oranges and pinks. Lauren and Jasmine then began to enjoy their cake until Jasmine smeared some frosting on Lauren’s nose. Of course, Jasmine helped clean by licking it off, I mean what other way is there? The two enjoyed their cake and embraced tighter as the cold began to set in after sunset.
